New Floors

I am going to be absent for a day or two. I am getting a new floor and baseboard in my main room. All the furniture has to come out including the desk and 'puter. See you all in a couple of days.

Pirate is glaring down on me waiting for me to sign off. He wants to remove my chair. Bye!

I'm around, just not much going on and I have been working in the yard. Picking up extra shifts, too. Thanks for thinking of me.

Has anyone missed me?

I have just come out the other side of my winter cold/flu season - just in time for the allergies but they are a lot easier to manage. The bugs latch on to my lousy immune system and won't let go until the weather gets better. My normal pain and fatigue levels are there, but a lot easier to maintain without added things to deal with.

I am going back into the web business! I met a woman through my blog who also has suffered years of chronic pain, wants to feel like she is contributing but like me can't take an outside job. She is going to do all the marketing and client handling while I do the tech. We will mainly get small businesses hooked up with Social Media. (Mod's I hope this doesn't seem like an advertisement because it is no way intended to be. We aren't even started yet and I won't mention any names .

I just wanted to let my friends here know that if I am gone for periods of time it is probably more that I am genuinely happy doing work I love instead of being in the hospital or just in too much pain to type.

Oh yes, I have given up the cake business altogether and could not be happier. It was just getting too hard with my hands and fatigue.

So, I will see you all when I can!

I've missed you, LP! I'm so glad you're able to do work you enjoy. That's great that you've hooked up with a partner. I hope you'll stop in once in a while and let us know how it's going

PS remind me not to roll on the floor laughing. It hurts and I can't get up!
